The Pinnacles Trail
If these images have you eager for a trip, here's a little more information:
The Pinnacles Trail is an intermediate walk, and can be completed in one day, or you can stay overnight in the Pinnacles Hut or Dancing Creek campsite and take it a little slower (overnight stays must be booked in advance). There are two routes, both beginning at the Kauaeranga road end. The shorter Webb Creek Track takes around three hours each way, or you can take the Billygoat Track one way to complete a circuit - and to add around two hours to the journey. Both tracks lead to the Pinnacles Hut, and from the hut you can walk for another forty minutes up a steep track to the Pinnacles Summit. For more information click here.
